    A high school teacher in my district died last Thursday. She was only 34 years old, and died shortly after giving birth to her 2nd son, due to a blood clot. She has a son in kindergarten at my former school.

    Such a sad, unexpected death. She sounded like an amazing woman! Her family could use some prayers.

    I can't imagine what her family is going through. My prayers are with everyone involved.

    How sobering that, in giving life, one can lose one's own.

    My condolences to her family and students and - as cat so well put it - all who were touched by her life.

    We are all, all so fragile.

    I'm so very sorry. We, too, lost a teacher and a close friend this school year. It's brutal.

    Sympathies and prayers for all those feeling her loss.
